Weirdly enough, the spice you get in the UK when you buy or use "Mixed Spice" basically is pumpkin spice. And what does "Spice Melange" mean? It means "Mixed Spice".

So the spice in Dune is canonically Pumpkin Spice, so far as I'm concerned.

It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the juice of coffee that thoughts acquire speed, the lips acquire stains, the stains become a warning. It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.

The other day I bought some eggnog and mixed it with Fireball Whisky, which is very cinnamony, and I could see the Golden Path laid out before me.

(honestly everytime I drink/eat anyhing cinnamony I pretend it's Spice)

I have no idea how good it is yet, but I was linked this recipe for Chai-Halud from a coworker.

I kind of want to do a version that ignores the obvious pumpkin / spice connection. So it would be stuff like:

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total pumpkin obliteration."

"That's no moon. It's a space pumpkin."

Oh sorry was it still supposed to be from Dune?
